Most of the snow falling in the state will be in areas along and north of the Interstate 80 corridor, the forecast says. But, the National Weather Service says locations north of I-78 could receive “brief winter precipitation” that is unlikely to stick to roads or cause disruption.
Higher-elevation areas of Sussex County are more likely to see a couple of inches, forecast maps from the weather service show.
AccuWeather.com is calling for 1 to 3 inches of snow in the northwest corner of the state.
Rain will fall in the rest of the state, where temperatures on Sunday will be in the 40s and 40s.
Temperatures Sunday night into Monday will drop to near freezing, but by then the precipitation will have moved away from our area.
Friday and Saturday look mostly dry, sunny, and seasonal. Temperatures will peak in the 40s to 40s this afternoon, normal for this time of year. Overnight lows will dip into the 20s.
Saturday will offer largely similar conditions, although it will be slightly cooler. Forecasters also say there could be some showers along the Jersey shoreline Saturday night.
The start of next week should bring a return to dry conditions and temperatures in the 40s on both Monday and Tuesday. The next chance of rain will be on Wednesday.
